Brick Township Police Department

We are sharing this video from Brick Township Police Department as a reminder to everyone of The New Jersey Move Over Law. Please be aware of stationary emergency vehicles on the roadway and safely make a lane change. If a lane change is unsafe or prohibited by law, reduce your vehicle's speed. Keep your eyes on the road and drive safe everyone!

Follow the below link for more information on The NJ Move over law (New Jersey Statute 39:4-92.2):

https://www.nj.gov/oag/hts/move-over-law/move-over-law-text.html

Too many emergency personnel get injured or killed while on the side of the road by inattentive drivers. To protect our officers and other emergency workers while responding to an event on the roadways, New Jersey passed the Move Over Law.

In a nutshell, the law states that if an emergency vehicle is on the side of the road with its emergency lights activated, such as in a police motor vehicle stop, drivers are to change lanes to the left, giving the officer a full lane of space. If the lane to the left is not available due to traffic, then the driver is to slow down to well below the posted speed limit before getting to the location of the emergency vehicle, and if necessary, be prepared to stop.

Officer Williams was conducting a motor vehicle stop this past Sunday evening when a passing motorist struck his vehicle just as he was preparing to exit his cruiser. Thankfully, despite the extensive damage to the police cruiser, Officer Williams is okay. The driver stopped after the collision and was issued a summons for Improper Passing of an Emergency Vehicle (Move Over Law).

Please keep our emergency workers safe. If you see an emergency vehicle with its lights activate on the side of the road and you fail to move over or significantly slow down as you pass safely, you will receive a summons, and even worse, you might seriously hurt someone.

Please take a minute to read a message from the Detective Bureau regarding the latest scams to be aware of: 🕵️

The Plainsboro Township Police Department would like to inform our township residents, community partners and friends of an increase in telemarketing scams and frauds. There is been a noticeable increase in telemarketing scammers posing as lawyers, legal authority figures or lottery officials who target US citizens promising cash prizes, vehicles, vacation getaways, etc. The actors then advise the “winners” that they can claim their prize if they provide their banking information, wire money, or send cash or checks for shipping, insurance or taxes. The bottom line is there is no prize, and numerous persons throughout the US have been victimized by this fraudulent activity.

We urge everyone to be alert to this illegal fraudulent activity and urge you to take the following basic precautions.

· If someone claims they have won a foreign lottery, it is a scam. Hang up immediately.
· Beware of solicitations asking you to send money to another country.
· Do not believe statements that you need to pay money to “collect your winnings.”
· Do not be rushed into sending money by a sense of urgency or threats.
· If it sounds too good to be true, it is.
· Do not send money or provide personal identifying information to possible fraudulent callers

We wanted to take this time to remind everyone of the potential dangers of freezing bodies of water. The temperatures have been rather erratic this winter, with some days freezing cold and other days feeling like spring. So, needless to say it hasn’t been cold enough to thoroughly form ice and definitely not strong enough to venture out on. Knowing how naturally curious, adventurous and sometimes fearless children can be, please take the time to have a conversation with your kids about the possible dangers.

Hello everyone. Just a reminder:
when it’s raining during the day....wipers on, lights on. Even though you may have your lights set to “automatic,” that doesn’t guarantee that your lights will be on when necessary. Sometimes you need to manually turn your lights on. That’s all for now. Stay dry. Have a great day!☔️🌧

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN!!!!

Firefighters to Escort St. Nick through Plainsboro on Friday and Saturday

Annual Early Visit Scheduled for December 13 and 14
PLAINSBORO – Santa Claus is visiting Plainsboro again! Given his prestige and celebrity a special escort has been arranged with Plainsboro Fire and Plainsboro Township Police Department. After an exhaustive investigation and search our brothers in blue have been able to find and arrest the Grinch. The Council of Legendary Figures has sentenced the Grinch to community service and ordered he apologize for the holiday mischief. In accordance with this order the Grinch will be joining Santa on his visit to Plainsboro. Plainsboro Police will be providing security to ensure the Grinch does not cause any disruptions to this year’s holiday celebration. This year’s
itinerary includes 34 stops in Plainsboro neighborhoods for all to enjoy. Times and locations are posted below. At each stop, signs will be posted marking where Santa is making his infamous visit. We ask that you remain with your children and keep them on the sidewalk until Santa and
the fire trucks come to a stop. Santa will be exiting his sleigh to greet them and take pictures. In an effort to ensure everyone gets to visit with Santa we will be using a rope line to control access. Please pay attention to the directions provided by Santa’s elves or you run the risk of
being put on the naughty list. Since the scheduled stop times are approximate, residents are reminded to arrive at the stop early and be prepared for a possible late arrival. In the event inclement weather or a major emergency causes a postponement we will update our website and our page with new times.
